If you’re able to answer these questions right from the start, you will be able to make an effective website design.
These are the questions only you can answer.

Once you’re done with the purpose, next up is the communication.

I the response is good, you can try out different things.
A good design is all about the right colors. You need to have reasonable consideration for the colors of your website.
Ensure that the background makes it a good first impression.
No need to try something totally different.
There are designs out there that are already working. Study their design and see what is working for them?
The right images will boost your conversion leads.
Of course, you need to use human images. Images that people can relate to.
If you use stock photos that won’t do any good. Everyone knows about it. But if you use images that people can relate to, it will be a great change.

To conclude it all. You need to have a design that really matters. You need to put something of value out there. Start with something basic and move towards your way up to something really advanced.
